How Do Platform-Based Networks Shape Systemic Value Creation Through Experiences?

This paper explains the role of platform-firms in shaping how consumer experiences create value. Studying the Couchsurfing network, we identify several ways in which platform-firms can support value creation at the level of individual experiences (shaping expectations, performances, and responses), and at the level of aggregate experiences (shaping the network).
